Crazy Awesome

Welcome to the antidote.

I’m LOVING the crazy-tall high heel trend. More, I say, MORE! September 29, 2008

The women of Hollywood are in an arms race, ladies and gentlemen, and deadly-tall high heels are the weapons of choice.  I’m loving it.  First of all, they look sexy as HELL.  Second of all, how much FUN it is to watch all these ridiculously rich, gorgeous, famous celebrities teeter around in ever more ridiculous footwear?

First, Gwyneth hit the Iron Man promotional world tour in like 12 pairs of ridiculous stilettos.  There were a few of the best:

I love the $820 nude lace-print stilettos by Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti.

The Burberry black lace-up patent leather stilettos are my fave.  Sexy, no?

Then Lily Allen decided to bring it:  

 

What's up, bitches?

And again, with these delicious creations:

And THEN, Posh Spice was like, “Fuck all y’all,” and launched her fragrance in these.  They’re so high, there IS NO HEEL!

Posh launches new perfume in crazy tall pleather boots September 28, 2008

Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, and her husband of nine years – international soccer star David Beckham, launched their matching new perfumes today at the Macy’s at Herald Square (NYC).  There was such a clamor to see them at the Beckham Signature Perfume launch that the crowds apparently stopped traffic.  One look at Posh, though, and you’ll understand why:

 

Um...HOW IS SHE STANDING UP?

Um...HOW IS SHE STANDING UP?

Here’s a closer look at the madness that is Posh:

I wonder how many burly, muscle-bound, dextrous men it took her to get into those boots.  They are UNREASONABLY tight.  

But hot.  It’s true.

The boots were designed by English-Italian designer Berardi, a long-time friend of the Beckhams who also made their post-wedding outfits nine years ago.  The 40-year old fashionista says that while the women are often daunted at first, they walk out feeling like they’re wearing a normal (well, normal 5 & 1/2″) high-heeled shoe.  Says Berardi, “They’re perfectly balanced”.
